'Sub-Mariner" in "Wakanda Forever"

According to reports, Marvel Studios upcoming "Black Panther" sequel "Wakanda Forever", now in post-production, will introduce the first live-action take of Marvel Comics "Namor the Sub-Mariner" (Tenoch Huerta) who now originates from a submerged Mexican city, rather than 'Atlantis':

Debuting in 1939, predating DC's "Aquaman" (1941)...

...'The Sub-Mariner''was created by writer, illustrator Bill Everett... 

...depicted as the mutant son of a human sea captain and a seductive princess on a spy mission for her undersea kingdom of 'Atlantis'. 

Namor possessed the super-strength and aquatic breathing abilities of his mother's 'Homo Mermanus' race...   ...as well as tiny flipper-like wings on his ankles that enabled him to fly. 

The character has been portrayed either as a good-natured, short-fused superhero...   ....or a hostile invader wildly obsessed with vengeance against all humans. 

After fighting WWII with the Allies, 'Captain America' and the 'Human Torch', Namor resurfaced in the 1950's as the subject of a live-action TV series starring Richard Egan.
